Cupa Pizarras R&D team focuses on the development of new solutions in natural slate. The result is CUPACLAD® Design; a group of ever growing design concepts showcasing the boundless possibilities of natural slate rainscreen cladding systems.
The zigzag pattern of CUPACLAD® Design ARROW projects energy and dynamism. ARROW alternates rhomboid slates to create the pattern. The stone format is the same used for ASCENT and WAVE, but units are placed horizontally and without mixing formats. This zigzag pattern provides a sense of verticality to high buildings and a dynamic effect to large horizontal buildings.
As other CUPACLAD® Designs, ARROW uses the same fixing method as the CUPACLAD® 101 series. Slate units are fixed using self-drilling stainless steel flathead screws and slates are overlapped so that screws remain invisible.
|Slate Size||40X25 cm|
|Nominal Thickness||7.65 mm|
|Number of Slates/m2||12,5 units|
|Fixing||2 invisible, flathead screws|
